In this work I am using the studio as a way to explore masculinity within the photographic medium. I photograph my nude body and objects within my home to insert a female presence as a gesture of power. My efforts in reclaiming power are then contradicted by performing gestures that represent the realities of being a minority women within the space I have created, as well as within society. These gestures and constructed environments are influenced by day to day encounters of oppression and discrimination.
